Application for Travel under the VTL (Air)

Singapore Citizens (SC) / Permanent Residents (PR):

All SC/PRs and unvaccinated children aged 12 and below in the current calendar year do not need to make any applications under the Vaccinated Travel Lane. However, SC/PRs must also comply with all the requirements stated in the VTL (Air) Traveller’s Checklist, failing which, the prevailing health control measures will apply, which may include serving a Stay Home Notice.

SC/PRs who are not vaccinated in Singapore are strongly encouraged to submit their overseas vaccination certificate in their health declaration as part of the SG Arrival Card submission, to be submitted within 3 days prior to the date of their arrival in Singapore. Please note that the physical arrival card (“white card”) is no longer accepted.

SC/PR travellers will need to present an acceptable proof of vaccination for verification at check-in and arrival immigration. You are strongly encouraged to self-verify your vaccination certificate prior to your trip by referring to the guide here. Those who are vaccinated in Singapore are not required to submit their vaccination certificates as their vaccination records are already captured in the Singapore Ministry of Health (MOH) database.
